Level I Oral Assessment Kit & Mid-Year Check List. Draft.
Bigard, Patricia E.; And Others
The assessment packet presented is a draft of a test designed for use with beginning level students of a second/foreign language in the Columbus (Ohio) public schools. It focuses on speaking skills and attempts to test only what students can be expected to say, realistically. The packet consists of: nine mini-tests for use at regular intervals throughout the academic year; a year-end speaking test; a scale for evaluating student performance; mid-year skills checklists for both teachers and students, for both French and Spanish, to be administered in January as an index of student progress and a placement aid; and a comprehensive student evaluation form to be submitted at the end of the school year. An introductory section outlines some specific strategies for test administration and checklist use. (MSE)
